With a tinge of pollen in the crisp spring air, the momentum to the annual Spruit Day has residents of Jozi excited to get their hands dirty. The collective effort of communities, businesses, residents associations and environmental enthusiasts, will see over 700 volunteers hard at work, in cleaning, clearing and beautifying over 35kms of the Braamfontein Spruit on Saturday, 16 September.


Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ), the champions in keeping Joburg green, together with volunteers, aims to make this year’s clean-up a resounding success. The mass mobilization of the community in litter picking, removing logjams that cause blockages to the natural flow of the spruit, removal of alien invasives and planting of indigenous trees will ensure that the integrity of the spruit is retained.

Although JCPZ’s ongoing campaign for the removal of alien invasive species throughout Joburg has been impactful, the importance of educating the public in identifying less common alien invasives, will go a long way in eradicating these disruptive water guzzlers along this critical water body.

In order for Spruit Day to have a greater reach this year, the aim is to see all Residents Associations (RA’s) along the Spruit get involved in some way on the day, even if their zone along the Spruit is small. In order to participate this year, visit social media platforms on:
